It’s been nearly a year since we told you that Cartoon Network had announced a “brand-new, redesigned and re-imagined CG” Powerpuff Girls special as part of its 2013 lineup. Well it turns out they were only off on the date by a month, because today Cartoon Network announced that “Dance Pantsed”, the title for The Powerpuff Girls special, has been set for January 20, 2014, and that a five hour marathon of the girls’ previous adventures would air the day before.
“Redesigned and reimagined CG” makes me nervous, but the fact that the original voice actors have returned makes me very very happy. Here are the details, which include seemingly everything but the all-important screenshot; I guess we’ll have to keep waiting for those visuals.

Cartoon Network is adding a little sugar, spice and everything nice back to its lineup — for one night, at least.
Ringo Starr is also joining the cast for the special — he voices Fibonacci Sequins, Townsville’s most famous flamboyant mathematician, in a special guest appearance. Starr also performs an original music vid and song for the program titled “I Wish I Was A Powerpuff Girl.”
Dubbed “Dance Pantsed,” spesh follows Mojo Jojo as he kidnaps a mathematician, an opera singer and a badger to steal Chemical X and take over Townsville. But when the Powerpuff Girls thwart his plan, he invents an evil video game called “Dance Pants R-EVILution” to control their minds and bodies to fulfill his evil plot. »
